Clay County Sheriff Terry Miller reports that on April 15, 2017 the sheriff's department was contacted about some graffiti found at Chalk Bluff. The graffiti referenced a possible shooting to take place at a school in Piggott. The sheriff's department immediately notified the Piggott Police Department and the Piggott School District. After an intensive investigation, Sheriff Miller reports that the individuals responsible for the graffiti were identified and are being charged with Falsely Making a Terroristic Threat. The case will be referred to the Clay County Juvenile Department. Sheriff Miller would like to thank and commend the Piggott Police Department and the Piggott School District for their assistance in this matter. He would also like to state that no overt actions were taken to carry out this threat and that the Clay County Sheriff's Department's, Piggott Police Department's, and the Piggott School District's first priority is the safety of the students and staff
